It features 223 built-in sounds including dedicated piano, organ, and synth sound engines with real time control parameters for tweaking your sounds. You can further tweak your sounds by adding up to seven simultaneous effects with controllable parameters. It also features a built-in drum section with a 52 rhythm pattern library, Roland's D-Beam controller, and a looper effect with up to 20 seconds of recording time that can play back WAV, MP3, and SMF files from USB flash memory via the VR-09's USB port. The graphic LCD menu displays your parameters, and additional control can be provided with the free VR-09 Editor app for the iPad. Designed to be travel-friendly and used by the gigging musician for both practice and live shows, the VR-09 can be powered by eight rechargeable AA batteries or the included AC power supply.
Acoustic and Electric Pianos
The V-Combo VR-09 is filled with a wide selection of pianos for covering all musical styles. The acoustic grand piano features 88-note stereo multi-sampling. Many popular vintage electric piano sounds are onboard as well, along with effects such as vintage phaser and tremolo. The compressor which is accessible via a dedicated, easy-to-reach knob transparently boosts the level of the piano sounds, ensuring that your playing cuts through when performing in loud bands
Roland's SuperNATURAL technology powers the V-Combo VR-09's classic tonewheel organs, while nine harmonic bars provide authentic real-time performance control. A newly developed transistor-type organ is also included, offering the unique sound of combo instruments from the 1960s. The 61-note keyboard has a fast response, perfect for essential organ techniques such as trill, sputter, glissando, and percussive hits. Rotary speaker and amp simulators reproduce the characteristics of vintage organ speaker cabinets and overdriven tube circuits with realism, while a new "Twin Rotary" option delivers a deep, aggressive effect. The VR-09 is compatible with Roland PK pedalboards
Vintage and Modern Synth Tones
The V-Combo VR-09 is packed with a ton of ready-to-play synthesizer sounds, from vintage analog classics like JUNO strings and '80s synth brass to textured, modern-era digital tones and beyond. Front-panel controllers allow you to tweak the synth tones intuitively in real time, including convenient ADR and cutoff/resonance adjustment with the harmonic bars in the ORGAN block. Onboard effects like "Bit Crash" provide the ability to create modern synth voices for current dance music, including dubstep
Up to 7 effects can be used simultaneously to help tweak your sounds. Included are overdrive, tone compressor, 20 types of multi-effects, 6 types of delays, 6 types of reverb, and 2 types of rotary
